We’re continuing the space theme with this week’s installment in our Name that Tech Tune contest, but with a different twist. Be careful, because this one might be harder than it seems.

Up for grabs this week is a pair of tickets to the GeekWire Summer Bash, coming up June 21 at the Showbox Sodo in Seattle. (More details to come next week on this big event.) From the pool of correct answers, we’ll pick one person at random to win the tickets.
